Zaneta Boles is a 20-year veteran educator who has spent her entire career working in the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools. As a native of Kansas City, her passion for education was birthed out of the influence of the educators in her family, primarily her mother. She chose to work in the inner city because she has always had a connection with the everyday highs and lows that urban life can present. This unique experience is what drives her mindset to serve others, as she deems it to be the greatest honor and privilege.
Prior to becoming a principal, Principal Boles has spent her educational career serving as a Classroom Teacher, Instructional Coach, and Assistant Principal.
Principal Boles is married, and has one daughter.
